My job is to figure out what the science and ES faculty and students need and to try to satisfy those needs. This includes class instruction in library resources, in Endnote/Mendeley, consultations about course or research projects, helping to troubleshoot access to resources, purchasing books and electronic resources, as well as helping to train our student workers. I also go to lots of lectures and presentations on campus to keep up with what’s happening in the areas I work with and am interested in.
